Chicken 65…a real popular dish in the south India…how did it get its name???? Well the video tutorial tells the story…
A chef created this dish and did not know what to name it.. it was a real fiery spicy dish and he just couldnt think of an appropriate name…
Since it was the 65th item on the menu card… he just called it “chicken 65”!!!!!
I know many of my followers cannot take a lot of spice in their food so i decided to create a non spicy version of this
I also took this a notch further and made it with turmeric powder instead of red food coloring as the original recipe states.
If you like spicy food then all you need to do is add some red chilli sauce and green chillies to this. You can also add red chilli powder in the marinade.
My bilingual video tutorial will guide you to make this wonderful dish in a jiffy!
250 grams of boneless chicken breast cut into cubes
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste, or more if you like
1/2 teaspoon of salt
juice of half a lime
1/2 teaspoon of red chilli powder if you want it spicy
200 grams of white natural yogurt at room temperature
2 heaped tablespoons of white flour
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder or red food coloring
1-2 tablespoons of chilli sauce
1/2 teaspoon of salt (or to taste)
5-6 curry leaves
1/4 cup of green capsicum, cut into cubes like the chicken
oil for deep frying and tempering
Marinate the chicken preferably overnight in the ginger garlic paste salt and lime. Add an egg to it and the flour and mix. Heat the oil for deep frying and deep fry each pieve of chicken till pale golden. Meanwhile mix the yogurt with the turmeric or red chilli powder, and chilli paste if you want it spicy and some salt. Put the fried chicken pieces into the yogurt and mix well. Heat another two tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and add the yogurt-chicken mixture with the curry leaves and capsicum and cook till its dried up. Serve hot wtih additional chopped green chillies if you like it even spicier!!
Here is my version of chicken 65…and i am sharing the link to the video and a pic of how it looks with red food coloring tooo!
